Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
Checked for fuel at carb was ok checked spark plugs ok checked for spark from plugs had spark maybe a little weak
Make sure the battery is fully charged. Consider getting a jump from another vehicle and if that doesn't work buy a can of ether starting fluid from the local walmart or auto store. Make sure not to keep turning the motor over if the vehicle doesn't start - you will flood the motor with gas and can damage the pistons - excessive gas will wash off the oil and the starter will get very hot. If you have done that already consider removing the spark plugs and adding a few drop of engine oil to each cylinder and smell for gas - let it air out. When older cars sit unused problems can bubble up.

If it's been sitting for a few months, theres a pin sized hole the gas flows through and it usually gets clogged. My would turn over and almost start, then start for a second and as soon as I gave it gas it would die out. It was getting a small amount of gas through the clog but not enough to start it everytime. It would start 1 in 10 tries as the seeping gas would build up enough to almost start. yours could be clogged up. Hope this helps.

Check the valve adjustment. If a valve is standing open just a little, the compression will be too low to start the engine. Check fuel delivery by dribbling a little gasoline into the carb and try starting the bike. If it starts and runs for a second or two, you're not getting fuel into the cylinders. Check you carb again.

if it has reed valves, check them for either cracked or broken pedals. also try starting it with the air filter removed. also make sure the choke is operating properly

Low compression will affect the engine's ability to idle. So, check the compression. You need to see at least 140 psi of compression in order for it to idle well. Low compression can be caused by insufficient valve tappet clearance. If the valves are adjusted properely and the compression is still low, then there's internal engine work that needs to be done.
If the compression checks good, then you've either got plugged up jets in the carburetor, or an air leak between the carb and the engine that is preventing it from idling.

You need to check if there is any leaks from the carb to the motor. Make sure the carb is clean. An airleak could prevent the motor from starting as well as checking the carb itself ....the floats the jets things in that nature.
